Ubuntu 11.10 released

by Tony Hill on October 18, 2011

The naming of Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) was announced on 7 March 2011 by Mark Shuttleworth. He explained that Oneiric means "dreamy".

Ubuntu 11.10 will include a 2D version of Unity as a fallback for computers that lack the hardware resources for the Compiz-based 3D version. Shuttleworth also confirmed that Unity in Ubuntu 11.10 will run as a shell for GNOME 3 on top of GNOME 3 libraries, unlike in Ubuntu 11.04 where it ran as a shell for GNOME 2.

Programmers have invested considerable effort in the so-called processing trade applications. The fifth version of the Ubuntu Software Center has more icons and additional programs are much more intuitively arranged into categories. Fractional improvements have also been the subject of a search engine. There are, of course, new versions of software, namely Mozilla Thunderbird (default email client), Firefox and LibreOffice.
